the void

I wonder what God has in store for me?

Today, tomorrow, over the next few weeks & months?

As I go through each day, as I pray my way through struggles & joys, I feel like God is directing me.  Where?  I'm not sure yet.  Not my physical location, not like that.  Yet I feel like God is preparing me for.....something.

Maybe it's a deeper relationship with Him.  I've been lacking in my relationship with Him over the past few years.  I can feel it, that hole, that void - yet I also felt unable to do anything about it.  I know He has always been here, right here with me.  Maybe His whispers to my heart are finally getting through.

I need Him.  That's all there is to it.  I'm unable to make it, day after day after day, on my own.  My husband can't fulfill me.  My children can't fill that void.  Only God.

Every point of view has another angle
And every angle has its merit
But it all comes down to faith
That's the way I see it

You can say that love is not divine and
You can say that life is not eternal
"All we have is now"
But I don't believe it

There's a God-shaped hole in all of us
And the restless soul is searching
There's a God-shaped hole in all of us
And it's a void only He can fill

Does the world seem gray with empty longing
Wearing every shade of cynical
And do you ever feel that
There is something missing?

That's my point of view... 

Please, Lord, fill me

I love the verses in Jeremiah 29. I know everyone knows 29:11 but look down to verses 12-14. Awesome!
And always remember that "...he gently leads those that have young." Isaiah 40:11 I love that!
Isn't great that our Lord wants a relationship with us and that he understands that mommas with little ones need to be gently led?
